You sure he won't count?

Even if he doesn't, we could go in with 52 guys until he comes back

I am not sure if he would count or not but if he didn't count why would you only go in with 52. It would make sense to go in with 53 so we'd have a trial period with those low on the totem pole to see if they can prove themselves.

I do consider him a receiver, but he will make the team as a KR more than anything else. I am not saying Pilares will get cut, but it wouldn't surprise me if Adams took some KR in preseason. If Adams can handle the KR duties, this really puts pressure on Pilares to produce as a WR. Gettis and Tutu are locks at this point in my opinion.

Someone will get cut that shocks everyone and I'm not sure Pilares is a lock.

Tutu is a lock? lol

We did it before in some other situation. I think it was when Smith was suspended.

There really isn't anyone of significance to keep around for 4 games atm. Even if we do keep a PS eligible guy on the 53 man squad and he turns out to be good, he'd have to clear waivers after already being showcased to the league before being put on our PS when Neblett returns.

Surprise cut Darius Butler. The notion that Gettis will be cut but not Tutu is bat poo cray.

i also think Butler is on the bubble and Gettis. Gettis is not one of RR guys and he has yet to step on the field. he start on pup as well.

Looks like Roger Allen won't play tonight. Really hurts his chances of making the team as the backup OG. Mike Pollak and Zack Williams gonna get a chance to impress and possibly take his job.

I honestly think Josh Thomas makes it over Butler. Tutu gets cut and Gettis is given plenty of time to heal up.

I'm not ready to give up on Tutu. He's a nice red zone target and we need that.

Medlock won't make this team if he kicks it to the 10 yd line on kickoffs....(a la mr. Holliday in the preseason opener)

No excuse not to kick it into the end zone from the 35.
[/quote]

I haven't read this whole thread, so someone may have said this already but there is a very good excuse for him to not have kicked it into the end zone, the coaches probably told him not to.

The coaches know what the kickers can do on kickoffs as they see it in practice, not like a FG with having to do it against a live rush and with pressure. I'm sure in the preseason the coaches a lot of times ask them not to put it into the endzone so they can see how their coverage is doing. The reason it only made it to the 10 was probably because he accidentally took too much leg out of it and it came up very short.
